Glenn Beck offers humble mea culpa for initial
opposition to Trump: ‘I feel truly horrible for
the things I said’

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 8/29/2020 3:10:07 AM

Blaze TV founder and conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck posted a stunningly honest apology to fans and to President Donald Trump for his opposition to a candidate he initially believed had no shot at the White House and was wrong for the country. “I am feeling so humbled this week. I feel truly horrible for the things I said and believed in 2016 about @realDonaldTrump. I believed the worst politically, which he proved me wrong at almost every turn. In the most dramatic cases (life/Israel/China/authoritarian),” Beck said to open a lengthy Twitter thread. “I expected @realDonaldTrump to take control federally at the first opportunity. Here we are in a massive crisis.


Will wonders never cease??!! Count me as one of those who wrote him off in 2016. Welcome back to the light side of the Force!!

There was a time early on that I liked Glen Beck but no more. It is my opinion that he isn't to be trusted to empty a West Virginia slop-jar.

#1. Beck has a Mormon brain. Truth changes and whatever becomes most convenient is the new truth. There is no money in talk radio for an anti Trump conservative. That’s why he changed his tune.

I love Blaze TV and I like some of Beck's programs, but like others, I don't trust him. I remember an interview with Sarah Palin that was condescending, but the worst was his reaction to Andrew Breitbart's death. He did not seem upset by it, not quite happy....but definitely dismissive of Andrew as a key player. Can't quite put it into words, but I found it very disturbing.

Well..l..lots of people didn't think Trump would end up as conservative as he is proving to be....after all he didn't have a record as a politician...which probably helped him??? It's like in a work place sometimes a complete stranger can resolve problems people have lived with for years.

I last listened to Beck when he had a show on FOX... The chalkboard charts and graphs were interesting and I could take or leave his conspiracy theories... But he was spot on about George Soros and the Cloward/Piven strategy.

I guess I'm just an optimist. I found it quite difficult when he went "never Trump" in '16, so I'm gracious to have him back. This is a war, and we need every bit of help we can get. He'll never be the same as Rush, but dear Mr. Limbaugh won't be with us forever, paradise awaits. If the Lord tarries, we will need principled folks who are willing to search for Truth in themselves and our world. Welcome home Glenn.

Beck's show evolved over the years, and not for the better. In his early days he had the funniest bits and sketches and fake commercials in talk radio. He used humor effectively. Later, as he tried to build a media empire (this was severe overreach) he became a preachy, pious, saccharine spiritual guru. From 9 to Noon, I listen to Chris Plante on Washington's WMAL.

I listen to Beck in the mornings. He's been pro-Trump for a long time...he changed his mind early in 2017 when he saw what Trump was doing. A lot of people had doubts about Trump but you couldn't deny all the good Trump did. Beck didn't. I like the upbeat tone of his show and, yes, he does go off into the weeds sometimes. It surprises me that anyone is taken aback by this.

Well good grief, it takes a big man to admit that he was wrong and apologize. Apology accepted Glenn. The Republican Party, President Trump and this country need all the help it can get. You are a strong voice and reach many. I too watched you on television and learned much. I remember you writing SOCIAL JUSTICE on your blackboard and telling us never to forget that phrase. It was going to become a powerful movement and one would have to be met head on, over and over again. You were so right. I thank you and am more than delighted to welcome you back. Your strong voice and incredible mind have been missed. It’s war and this country and this President need you.

Glenn Beck is not a stable individual, never has been. Back in the day when he was well liked and my mother made me listen to him I always thought he was way out there. It’s about the money folks, only side he’s on is his own.

#11 I’m a huge Chris Plante fan too having lived for 24 years in the DC area, home of WMAL. Now that I live in SC, I listen to him on my iPad. He’s incredible funny in a similar way to Kurt Schlichter and never pulls his punches. If I am out running errands in the mornings now, I do listen to Beck because he’s the only one available on local talk radio and I’ve noticed that he’s not nearly as nuts as he was there for a while. I quit listening to him after his big rally in DC - he just got too weird. I do appreciate his apology - something very few people do these days. Welcome back, Glenn. PDT was not my first choice in 2016, but when an interviewer asked him what he would do about ISIS, he said he would bomb the shiite out of them (though he used the actual profanity) and that was when I jumped on the train. After 8 years of 0bama kissing Muslim terrorist arses and giving them $billions, it was a no-brained to support Trump. Another promise fulfilled - where is ISIS these days?

Call. me crazy, but I like Glen Beck. I believe in redemption. To me, Redemption isn’t “Just for me and not for thee”. His radio show is good, but of course I listen, but may not follow his lead... on Blaze tv he has explained the Lefts Russia conspiracy unlike ANY network or journalist alive today. So before you mock him, inform yourselves.

If Beck makes a statement, wait a while and he will change his mind with all the piety of someone who's had a come to Jesus moment. Then he will try to find a way to weave it into a soon to fail financial venture. I liked his Fox TV show, but soon he started doing such cringeworthy things I started being embarrassed for him. Just cant stand him anymore.

I never cared for Beck's going "on tour" like an entertainment stage act. His approach to many issues is too apocalyptic for my taste. However, Glenn Beck single handedly exposed the anti-white racist and communist Van Jones early in the Obama years, forcing him to resign from Obie's administration. Beck was the first to expose Jones for what he was and beat the drum until Jones departed. A fine accomplishment. After Hillary Clinton needlessly destroyed Libya to try and prove her bona fides as a world player, Beck was also one of the first to shine light on how missiles and other key weaponry were being shuttled out of Libya, sold into Syria and making their way to the new terrorist group which eventually became Isis. That was below nearly everyone else's radar.

When someone spends their entire existence talking about me, myself and I, they are not to be given the time of day! Being a human is about others and their needs, desires and wants! Selfishness is a terrible way to live! Beck says I, I, I all the time while talking!

Glen Beck is a weirdo. I heard him maybe once by accident when my car radio picked him up while on a trip. It triggered a thought about why I stopped liking him when he left Fox. Now if Juan Williams, the crash test dummy, would admit something like this that would be news.

The talk radio landscape would be lesser without the prescient Glenn Beck. He predicted much of what is happening today back in 2012. I, too, was disappointed with his non support for Trump but as one said above, he has been turned as Trump has kept his promises and shown his true mettle. I started listening to him again during the pandemic and look forward to his morning musings and great research. He is one talented guy and an important voice in America.

Hey, let’s not hammer someone who has apologized and understands what we are up against. Give me Beck any day over Romney, Flake, Murkowski, and the rest of the cowardly never Trumpers. If there is one thing he knows it is exactly why and who the people are behind the war that is being waged on our streets and in our cities, in the halls of government, and in the classrooms of our schools and universities. We need every informed voice we can get. What we cannot do is have a standard so high that few can meet it. Those who sincerely attempt to speak truth deserve a hearing. Beck is best when he is teaching. He should leave the preaching alone and focus on informing his audience. He has a role to play and I admit I am cautious and aware of his shortcomings, but I believe he understands the threat we face. Is her perfect? Absolutely not, but none of us are. He will not attain the following he once had and that is a good thing. Right now he is a voice speaking truth and God knows we need the truth out there. Stay grounded, Beck. You have a role to play.

However Beck feels about President Trump I guess he finally came to realize that the alternative is far worse. It has truly amazed me that so many people held President Trump responsible for the rioting ,looting, arson and violence that has continued for over two months in these Democrat controlled cities. The reason the anarchy has continued for so long, is the Democrat politicians in these cities order the police to stand down and refuse to prosecute any of the people committing these crimes. Whenever President Trump has offered to help restore order, he has been accused of want to be a dictator and worse. The Democrat politicians are quick to point out they, not President Trump, have the authority to control what happens in their cities, but they refuse to take action and prevent anybody else from taking action. The slate needs to be wiped clean of all Democrat politicians this November.

No time for sour grapes. Never Trumpers can either keep attacking or come onboard. Those are the options. Onboard is what we want. The only reason we are talking about Beck right now is because he came onboard. Hope it’s an example to others. Beck, good.

#15 You mentioned Beck's DC rally. I found that tedious because for months leading up to the rally he turned his daily radio show into a commercial for the rally. So his show featured FAR less actual content and more hype-building salesmanship. And back then Salem Radio Network didn't yet exist as a talk alternative.

We should cut Beck some slack on this. He was skeptical of Donald Trump early on. Most current Trump supporters, myself included were, before President Trump proved us wrong. "My" candidate in 2016 finished strong, but came up just short. He had been hard hit by Trump in the primary, but was man enough and American enough to put it behind him work his tail off to help the new President. We are now facing an election that will determine the future not just of America but of the current and potential future free world. Brain-dead Never Trumpers are a threat to our side, but TrumpTrain supporters who continue to condemn anyone who tries to come aboard because they were convinced by President Trump's actions in office are doing more harm than the Never Trumpers. The Democrat "big tent" is a temporary setup for their quadrennial socialist revival meeting that is folded and stored, with their free stuff worshippers ignored, until the next election. Let's make the NEW Republican tent a permanent structure that welcomes every American who wants to preserve the Republic. [PS: we should quit referring to our political system as a "democracy." It is a Constitutional Republic!]

Beck was good on TV at first but then he started crying and blubbering every show. The man is not stable. I'm glad he supports Trump now but let's face it, he's not stable enough to stick with it. He will fall off the wagon and start hating Trump soon enough. Hide your Cheetos.

I was discussing politics with some shooting buddies over dinner last night, and Beck came up. I was dismissive while my libertarian millenial friend was saying that Beck was a good guy to listen to, "but has his mental issues". I said that I had paid attention to Beck for a while, but that he went entirely off the rails against Trump, clearly disconnected from reality, so I had ditched Beck. He told me that it was a mistake. We agreed to disagree. I'll send him a link to the article. I still think Beck is a guy who has some good hearted motives most of the time, but has a poor grip on reality too much of the time.

Rather than commenting on Beck, I will comment on Trump... who deserves a lot of credit for winning over Beck. It says a lot that Trump is true to his word and true to the ideals of the founding fathers (as well as the father, son, and the holy ghost). It says a lot that Beck recognized this and publicly admitted it. So many of the other NeverTrumpers have dug in and become even stronger in their hate for Trump, even when it's clear Trump is even more trustworthy than most thought in 2016. Good on Beck, great for Trump.

I'm glad to hear Beck's apology and his commitment to President Trump's reelection. I am eternally grateful for his exposure of George Soros and his Open Society foundation. His chalkboard presentations on the old Fox show were absolutely brilliant. I took notes every show and filled six medium sized spiral notebooks. I still have them. Who had heard of Cloward-Priven before Glenn's lectures? He was the first to systematically map the landscape of the Swamp and Deep State. He showed the duplicity of our supposed Republican leaders and was the only one really pumping out the information detailing the betrayal of both of our political parties. He was instrumental in promoting the 9-12 D.C. rally in 2009. Then Fox got rid of him when he was getting too close to home. That was when TK and I realized Fox News wasn't on our side and we turned them off way back then. We tried watch Blaze TV when it started but were unimpressed by both quality of information and the production values. Beck has never made a secret of his fight with mental illness issues and I'm sure his firing from Fox was a trigger for many of the behaviors we witnessed. Whether his reasons for now supporting Trump are monetarily based or heartfelt, I welcome Glenn on board the Trump Train. I doubt I'll ever be a listener/watcher again, but he is another American voice for freedom. TCM aired "Casablanca" last night and so I echo Victor Laszlo, "Welcome back to the fight!" MAGA - Our American Restoration needs every fighter.

I'm with those who accept his apology and are forgiving. If he apologized to the President and his kids and if they accepted his apology then who am I to judge? I went to DC for Glenn's 8-28 rally at a time when the media was telling us that our political beliefs were in the minority. It was great to see many, many thousands of people who were on the same page as me. I also met and had conversations with people of different ethnicities who held the same beliefs I do. All in all it was a really fun day and on the bus ride home I and my bus mates discussed the Federalist papers (something that wouldn't happen on an Antifa-BLM bus trip, I'm guessing).

I had a lot of friends who liked Beck. I listened to his tirades against candidate Trump and thought for a guy who claims to be conservative, supporting Clinton by constantly criticizing Trump was a STUPID position to take. Never listened to him again. He's not without company in that regard. Hundreds of so called conservatives showed their true colors.

I parted company with Glenn Beck in 2009 when (still on FoxNews) he said that our Tea Party March on Washington D.C. had "tens of thousands." He was planning his own march, and I think he was jealous of what the official Tea Party March had been. Those of you who were there know that the 2009 Tea Party March was a glorious thing-----much more than "tens of thousands." I learned then that Beck could be small-minded and dishonest.

In 2016, I too was a Ted Cruz supporter. I was disgusted and stunned when Trump linked Cruz's dad to the Kennedy assassination. It took me a while to get on the Trump Train, but I did, fairly well before the election. So, I can understand where Beck was coming from. But, I was equally stunned and disgusted when Beck viciously turned on Ted Cruz when the senator ended up supporting Trump. I think that's when I stopped listening to Beck. That said, as others have noted here, I am happy to have Glenn back in the fold. We are in the fight of our lives, to save our beloved country and we need every able bodied citizen, talk show host, TV personality, whatever to be "down for the struggle." So, welcome back, brother Glenn. "This time I know our side will win."

"not getting aboard the Trump Train cost him personally and financially, as friends and fans abandoned him and his media ventures" SO is this apology a way to rebuild his business efforts? Beck was always edgy and quirky. It seemed to fit him at the time. When he went independant, it felt like his ego grew faster than anything else. So, thanks for the apology on behalf of the President who I am sure would be more gracious about it than I am. But it's wait and see on Beck. Anyone who would even hint at voting for Hillary is NOT to be taken seriously. Time will tell.

I used to really like to hear Glenn Beck years ago when he was only on the radio. Then he went to TV, Fox News and thought boy he's gonna do great things. Then he went off the rails . . . later to become a "never trumper". Even to the stunt of dipping his head into a bowl of cheetos, to make fun of the "Orange Man". I lost respect for Beck then, and it will be slow, long time, coming back for him in my life. It's kinda/sorta like lying to me . . . once you do that, your credibility is shot. I don't know when your lying and when your not.

I learned of Beck and liked what he had to say when he was first on Fox. Then he kind of went insane negative about Trump that seemed to be opposite to what I thought Beck believed. All the while Trump has remained exactly the same as he promised to be in 2016, all one had to do was listen to what Trump said and compare it to the facts to see Trump was telling the truth the whole time. Why Beck went insane I have no idea, at least now Beck appears to be getting well, I wish well in his recovery.

Pernicious incitement to looting being pushed

Posted by ladydawgfan 8/31/2020 5:16:20 PM Post Reply
The twisted logic of author Vicky Osterweil's new book, In Defense of Looting, would be laughable were it not so dangerous. Yet it is being taken seriously by NPR and other media outlets that should know better. In her interview with NPR featuring no pushback from the taxpayer-funded network's interviewer, Osterweil says of looting: "You're mass shoplifting. Most stores are insured; it's just hurting insurance companies on some level. It's just money. It's just property. It's not actually hurting any people." Nobody gets hurt. At least, nobody Ms. Osterweil cares about. Like the shop-owners with no insurance because they can't afford it.

There is some confusion in this story, so I’m going to give Benjamin Crump, the race-baiting ambulance chaser who represents the family of hospitalized sex-offender Jacob Blake, the benefit of the doubt and assume that he knows his butt from a hot rock. Three days ago, Blake’s mother said President Trump had called: Jacob Blake’s mother, Julia Jackson, said that President Donald Trump tried to call her in the aftermath of her son’s shooting, but she had missed it. … Jackson had on Tuesday called for national healing and condemned violent protest in a press conference led by her attorney, civil rights lawyer Ben Crump.

John Ratcliffe, the director of national intelligence, has been coordinating with U.S. Attorney John Durham and plans to soon declassify more documents related to the Trump-Russia probe, he said Sunday. “The question now is did the FBI have a proper predicate to begin a counterintelligence investigation at all, and that’s the issue that John Durham is looking at, and also the issue that I’m continuing to look at,” Ratcliffe said in an interview on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures.” Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, is conducting a sprawling investigation into several aspects of the U.S. government’s surveillance activities against Trump associates.

Freshman Democrat Rep. Sean Casten, the same guy who’d previously smeared decorated Navy SEAL Rep. Dan Crenshaw as a “racist” and compared President Donald Trump to deceased terrorist Obama bin Laden, is back in the spotlight again. In a dehumanizing, possibly sexist remark made during a webinar last weekend, he suggested to a college student that the only reason Second Amendment supporters want so desperately to own firearms is to make for up for their allegedly “small genitals.” “If you are a constitutional originalist, unless you’re a member of a well-regulated militia, tell me why you need to own a gun?

Texas Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw laid out a series of “radical Democrat policies” that would be enacted if the party wins control over the House, Senate, and White House in November. In a short video, Crenshaw, a former U.S. Navy SEAL officer briefly broke down several pieces of legislation that have already been passed by the Democrat-controlled House and would very likely be passed by a Democrat-controlled Senate and signed by a President Joe Biden. “Ever wonder what it would be like if they had all branches of government?” Crenshaw, 36, asked. “Well, this is a pretty good indication.”

Dallas hair salon owner Shelley Luther is running for state senate in Texas to represent local business owners and individuals who want to make their own informed decisions during the pandemic. Luther, a Republican, appears to be pro-choice as far as freedom of movement and face masks are concerned. Moreover, Luther described Gov. Greg Abbott’s statewide mask mandate as “ridiculous” and believes that any further measures related to COVID should be subject to the approval by the state legislature “otherwise, we’ll turn into a communist state.” “I feel like if a business owner wants to require a mask to come in, then that’s their right,”

Testing, testing, testing -- that's how Pelosi and the Democrats say we'll defeat the coronavirus. Meanwhile, President Trump and his administration are conducting "operation warp speed" at breakneck pace to develop therapeutics, diagnostics, and a vaccine for the Wuhan flu. Unlike testing, treatments will actually do something for you when you come down sick with the disease. But now we're learning the overwhelming majority of those who have tested positive for the coronavirus should really have been found negative after all. According to The New York Times, potentially 90 percent of those who have tested positive for COVID-19 have such insignificant amounts of the virus present in their bodies

Just when you think the network can't go any lower, CNN decides to bring on the family of David Dorn – the retired African American police officer who was killed at a left-wing riot back in June – to conduct a Jerry Springer style interview where family members fight over whether or not their slain relative would have supported President Trump's re-election. Dorn's wife, Ann, gave a heart-wrenching address at the RNC convention, imploring Americans to end the bloodshed and cast their ballots for President Trump.

President Donald Trump received an astonishing surge in black support during the Republican National Convention, a new poll has found. The latest Hill-HarrisX poll, conducted August 22-25, shows 24 percent of registered black voters approve of President Trump, a jump of 9 points from the previous survey taken August 8-11. Trump’s support from Hispanic voters also increased to 32 points, up from 30 points in the previous survey. In 2016, Trump won the election with 8 percent of the black vote and 29 percent of the Hispanic vote. The Republican National Convention prominently featured minority speakers challenging the narrative that minorities are “supposed to vote” for the Democrats.

The GOP has put out a new ad that encompasses just a few incidents that happened over about 24 hours at the end of this week. But that’s really all they needed to convey their point: short and to the point with the blaring horn of “The Purge” in the background. They could have put a lot in, given the months of violence. But sometimes short is much more effective. The ad shows a couple being stalked by an insane BLM person in a full hood. She screamed obscenities at them and threatened the man that she was going to “f**k him up.”

It is unsure at this point if the Pro-Trump rally is intending to remain in the downtown area later into the evening when the Antifa/BLM protesters usually being their activities, or whether the Antifa/BLM protesters will direct their activities to the suburbs where they have spent a majority of their nights since leaving the streets surrounding the federal courthouse in downtown.

Between the two conventions this month there has been a curious dose of dissonance emerging on the left and in the press. At once there has been the effort made to declare Qanon a toxic conspiracy mill, with the intent of making anyone who can be accused of connection or being supportive poisoned as a result. At the same time these sources have been willing to push the narrative that President Trump is attempting to shut down the US Postal Service ahead of the proposed nationwide mail-in voting effort. It is a marvel of obliviousness that those who are decrying conspiracy theories are circulating "proof’’ of the President’s alleged efforts.

More active-duty U.S. troops say they’ll vote for former Vice President Joseph R. Biden than President Trump in the November election, a new poll shows, continuing a steady decline in the commander in chief’s favorability ratings among service members. A Military Times survey released Monday found that if the election were held today, 41% of active-duty troops say they’d vote for Mr. Biden, compared to just 37% for the president. Another 13% said they intend to back a third-party candidate, while 9% said they’d skip the presidential election altogether. The Military Times surveyed 1,018 active-duty troops for the poll.

A federal appeals court ruled Monday against Michael Flynn and the Justice Department in their request to quickly shut down his criminal case. The 8-2 decision restores power to a judge to question the Justice Department's moves in the politically divisive case, when Attorney General William Barr dropped charges against President Donald Trump's former national security adviser earlier this year despite twice pleading guilty to lying under oath to lying to the FBI. Flynn had fought District Judge Emmet Sullivan's decision to ask a third-party lawyer to argue against the Justice Department's dismissal in the case, and his plans to hold a hearing, which has not yet happened.

One of those vigilantes has been charged with killing two protesters and injuring another. But another Midwestern city — my city — was the center of attention three weeks ago.

In 2016, the Vatican was pulling for Hillary Clinton. Just days before the presidential election, Pope Francis renewed his criticism of politicians who speak about erecting “walls.” This led Slate and other publications to run such headlines as “It Sure Sounds Like Pope Francis Doesn’t Think Americans Should Vote for Trump.” Several Francis-friendly prelates ran interference for Hillary Clinton. San Jose’s bishop, Patrick McGrath, wrote a letter to his flock in which he said that Donald Trump’s complaint of a rigged system “borders on the seditious.” According to the Italian press, many of Pope Francis’s aides viewed Trump’s victory as a “bitter defeat.”

On the ninety-third night of violent antifa riots in Portland, a group of protesters occupied the lobby of Mayor Ted Wheeler’s (D-Portland) apartment building as a mob held a block party outside and activists shined strobe lights into Wheeler’s window. The mob demanded the complete abolition of the police by 2022. Meanwhile, a group of rioters set fire to the Portland Police Association building, targeting the police union for what appears to have been the fourth time since the police killing of George Floyd. This unrest came the day after Wheeler sent a letter to President Donald Trump, declining his offer to send federal officers. Protesters entered the lobby
